Perhaps the American troops “control” the airport but it doesn’t mean much if you can’t get INTO the airport. Unfortunately, the Taliban is controlling the entrance to the airport and have checkpoints in other areas of the city as well.
Biden’s asinine address to the nation on his disastrous pull out of our troops in Kabul, Afghanistan included a part where he said, “if they (Taliban) attack our personnel or disrupt our operation, the U.S. presence will be swift, and the response will be swift and forceful. We will defend our people with devastating force if necessary.”
The has been proven to be a lie.
And if you think things are bad now, they’re going to get worse. Much much worse.
What kind of idiot doesn’t evacuate our Americans and our Afghanistan allies BEFORE deserting the Bagram air base in the dark of night?
A HUGE idiot, that’s who.
A HUGE idiot who doesn’t give a rat’s rear end about the safety of the Americans who are still there or the Afghan allies who helped us over the past 20 years.
A HUGE idiot who, like everything else, took the marching orders of Obama OR he did what he wanted and went rogue.
I think he went rogue because he seems to be partially owning his decision, having ignored his generals and others who advised against continuing the pull out because of what was happening on the ground with the Taliban.
And Biden misjudged the PR situation tremendously by assuming that if things went wrong, he could blame Trump like he always did. That didn’t work this time. Even his own leftist media is mostly jumping ship on him during this disaster.
That’s because we saw what was going on before his leftist media friends could put a spin on things. There is video. There are personal accounts of what is going on. We’re seeing what is happening.

Thousands of American lives are in danger. No spin is going to get Biden out of this catastrophe.
Tens of thousands of people need to be evacuated but the Taliban is deciding who gets to leave. We are at the mercy of those decisions.
According to the Daily Mail, western nationals trying to flee Kabul have talked about being crushed and groped during a stampede of Afghans being held at Taliban checkpoints outside of the airport.
In addition to that, a United States official told Reuters that our troops had to kill two gunmen who fired into the crowd at the airport.
And what if you are an American living outside of Kabul? Well, it looks like you are on your own.
No one in the Biden administration, including President Disaster, has promised us that our troops will be in Afghanistan until EVERY LAST AMERICAN is rescued. Those are the words that should be coming out of the presidency but they’re not.
And thanks to Biden, the Taliban has all kinds of extra vehicles and arms to make sure Americans don’t make it out of the country.
The White House is actually saying that we are relying on the goodwill of the Taliban to get Americans out of the country. Neither Press Secretary Jen Psaki or National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan have promised to do what’s necessary to rescue Americans trapped in Afghanistan.
When asked if the U.S. government will commit to ensuring that any Americans currently on the ground in Afghanistan get out, Sullivan’s answer was “we have asked them all to come to the airport to get on flights and take them home” and he said they were talking with the Taliban in an effort to stop the beating or obstruction of those trying to get to the airport.
Psaki also didn’t guarantee, when asked, that our troops would help Americans and our Afghan allies evacuate if they remain in Afghanistan after the end of the month. She said, “our focus right now is on doing the work at hand.”
The cavalry is NOT coming for the Americans trapped in Afghanistan. They are on their own just like in Benghazi.
The Americans trapped in Afghanistan and our Afghan allies are apparently not likely to be democrat voters like the illegal aliens are so the Biden administration won’t spare any extra effort for them.
I’m sure our troops are just chomping at the bit to rescue the Americans but Biden isn’t going to give that order unless forced to by bad media coverage.
If we truly control the air space like the Biden administration says, I think they should allow any Americans who want to, military or otherwise, to be able to go in and rescue people. That’s what we do. That is who we are.
If thousands of Americans die in Afghanistan, this will be Biden’s own 9/11. Only HE will have been the one to cause it.
The buck will definitely stop with Mr. “I stand squarely behind my decision” if Americans are kidnapped or killed as a result of what he’s done.
